Ben White has not travel with the Arsenal squad to their Dubai training camp after leaving England’s World Cup camp for ‘personal reasons’.
White returned home from Qatar on November 30, the day after England sealed their place in the knockout stage with a 3-0 win over Wales.
A statement from the Football Association earlier last week read: “Ben White has left England’s training base in Al Wakrah and returned home for personal reasons.
“The Arsenal defender is not expected to return to the squad for the remainder of the tournament.
“We ask that the player’s privacy is respected at this moment in time.”
Arsenal followed up the story with a post on their website which read: “We’re all with you, Ben.”
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta and his team are heading to the UAE for warm-weather training before the European club season resumes with the north London side top of the Premier League.
Other Arsenal players like Granit Xhaka, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Thomas Partey have joined the team in UAE but not Ben White.
It is unclear whether White will link-up with his teammates later on in the training camp.
What is going on with Ben White?
Since that day against when he left the England squad, he disappeared. No new updates, he didn’t post nothing in social media. Nobody knows what happend to White.
Will he ever play football? Nobody knows what is going with him. Well, everybody hopes Ben is okay and comes back to club level football soon. He is having great season with Arsenal. He has become an undisputed starter at right back for Arsenal. Ben is very important player for Mikel Arteta. One of the best defenders in Premier League this season.
Him with Saliba and Gabriel have creat very solid defensive line. This trio could lead Arsenal to the glory days. Be strong, Ben!
